The loud squeeling noise turned out to be the s-charger bearings going bad.
Anybody else have this? Thanks God for the warranty.
I have an 09 w/37k miles.

Not sure if there is a prev post on this issue or not, but is it the bearings in the snout for the shaft, or the bearings in the charger case for the rotors?

Sounds came from the front end. Dealer said they're replacing the entire unit.

Don't be so sure that was the problem. I wouldn't be surprised if the dealer thought it was that but it's really the isolator.

Its amazing they will throw on an entire supercharger if it is just an isolator.

The term "isolator" wasn't mentioned. They apparently think it's better to replace the entire unit.
ps: what's an isolator?

I have seen 4 bad bearings in new units, VERY bad bearings. as in locked up in a few miles. So it could happen. I think some bearings might have been built without any lube in them. When they die, there is no grease to be found anywhere. All just dry and VERY hot looking housings.
